The Coolest Way To Do A Smoky Eye

Ahh, the infamous smoky eye. You're either a master at it or end up looking more racy raccoon than seductive siren. Pro or novice, it's a common misconception that when creating this look, black and gray are the obvious (and only) choices. We're over that and are ready for a new spin on the go-to going-out eye.

Fortunately, CK One Color global makeup artist Kayleen McAdams shares our passion for the unconventional. Her updated take on this classic look incorporates a whole lot of purple — a great unexpected color for fall — plus a hint of metallic to add a textured flair. It's perfect for a night out and can be done in five minutes (yes, really). Watch the video above to see just how easy it is to recreate this stunning smoky eye.
